In some fields, however, the term is used more narrowly and may be restricted to Caridea, to smaller species of either group or to only the marine species.
Under the broader definition, shrimp may be synonymous with prawn, covering stalk-eyed swimming crustaceans with long narrow muscular tails (abdomens), long whiskers (antennae), and slender legs.
The term shrimp is used to refer to some decapod crustaceans, although the exact animals covered can vary.
Used broadly, shrimp may cover any of the groups with elongated bodies and a primarily swimming mode of locomotion – most commonly Caridea and Dendrobranchiata.
My choice of sides is a fresh salad of mixed greens.
Light, fresh and crisp, it cuts the richness of the scampi and is the perfect complement.
A salad that consists of some bitter greens like kale, arugula or spinach contrasts especially nicely with the scampi. With you’re shrimp scampi and linguine served with a fresh green salad, you’re all set to go and dinner prep couldn’t be simpler!
Enjoy this superbly delicious lemon garlic shrimp scampi!
